2 Part 1 Multiple Choice. 3 marks for each question. Select the BEST answer. No part marks. 1. Let X be a random variable with probability density function below. () = elsewhere k k x f , 0 2 2 , The probability () 1 < X P is equal to (a) 0.15 (b) 0.25 (c) 0.5 (d) 0.65 (e) 0.75 2. Forty percent of business travelers carry a laptop. In a random sample of 15 business travelers, the probability that 12 or more carry laptops is closest to (a) 0.0019 (b) 0.0025 (c) 0.0031 (d) 0.0037 (e) 0.0042 3. A machining operation produces bearings with diameters that are normally distributed with mean 3 centimeters and a standard deviation 0.5 centimeters. Specifications require the bearing diameters to lie in the interval 8 . 0 3 ± centimeters. Those outside the interval are considered scrap and must be re-machined. What percent of the total production will be scrap? (a) 0.0548 (b) 0.1096 (c) 0.2131 (d) 0.3052 (e) 0.4452 Questions 4-5, use the following information . Customers arrive at a bookstore at a Poisson rate of six per hour. Given that the bookstore opens at 9:00 am. 4. What is the probability that more than 2 customers arrive by 10:00 am? (a) 0.062 (b) 0.1512 (c) 0.7741 (d) 0.8488 (e) 0.938 5. What is the probability that more than 2 customers arrive in each hour for the next 3 hours? (a) 0.062 (b) 0.1512 (c) 0.7741 (d) 0.8253 (e) 0.938

3 Questions 6-7, use the following information . Suppose that a student is considering one of the two possible summer jobs to take. If the student takes a summer course, then a part-time job at a hotel will produce earnings (rounded to the nearest $1000) with the following probability distribution. Earning $1000 $2000 $3000 $4000 Probability 0.3 0.4 0.2 0.1 If the student does not take a summer course, then a job as a waiter will produce earnings (rounded to the nearest $1000) with the following probability distribution.
